On the 26th, The Black Eyed Peas dropped MASTERS OF THE SUN Vol 1, and-- who needs Fergie? I kid, but need I say more? The album is solid expectedly, however I don't think any of us anticipated a traditional Hip-Hop album. The trio has return to the Golden Age of Hip-Hop with MASTERS OF THE SUN Vol 1 incorporating more free flowing verses than anything else accompanied by an occasional kill switch and musical fusion. The whole premise of the album is to wake the masses up. You see, The Black Eyed Peas dropping after a seven year hiatus along side the likes of Nasir and Tribe is an event in itself. Will,i. am, apl.de.ap, and Taboo have returned to encourage humans to pick a side-- metaphorically speaking: choose to take the high road or the low one, or in simpler terms: ascend or continue to live in hell. According to TBEP, if you are not doing your part by aligning you mind, body, and spirit, you are hindering the collective's progression. They remind us to embrace numerology, learn spiritual warfare, kick drug habits, and to love ourselves first, so that we can in return love one another. MASTERS OF THE SUN vol 1 is available on all streaming platforms.
